Overview

SkysenxHub’s TechCamp is our summer training platform for kids and teens during holidays where we introduce them to different technologies that will help shape their career paths. It is an annual event aimed at inculcating kids and teens with the technological skills required in the 21st century. Participants learn from basic technological concepts, to designing and building electronic circuits and programming the same. Started in 2019, our maiden edition which ran for 5 weeks was rewarding in both knowledge and fun.

Our 2021 edition promises to be much bigger and better, introducing more training programs to accommodate more areas of interest and improving on existing ones. We have also introduced a bus shuttle service to ease the stress of transporting participants back and forth from their various homes. Our new training centre located one minute drive from our office is bigger and even more comfortable for learning as we leverage on an existing school infrastructure to provide a serene environment even as we continue to adhere to the Covid-19 compliance.

Our new intuitive portal makes it easy to register participants, pay training fees and get assessments. You can access it here

Robotics (Electronics & Programming) age 13+

Fee: N50,000+ kits

Our Robotics Camp introduces participants from age 13 and above to the world of robotics starting with principles of electricity, electronics and computer programming. Participants will learn how to use various electronic components which are fundamental to the design and building of any robotics project. Participants will also learn how to control, manipulate electronic components using computer programming languages such as Python. Each participant gets a special training kit consisting of different components such as digital multimeter, Microcontroller, LEDs, resistors, capacitors, rechargeable battery, analog/digital sensors and many more, which will enable them to carry out hands-on practicals and continue the same even after the training program.

At the end of the training, participants will have good knowledge about electricity and electronics and build simple circuits and programs using Python Programming Language.

Participants also get exclusive access to our Electronics Shop where they can purchase various items at discounted prices to further their creativity.

Coding & Design (Web Dev, CAD, 3D Printing) age 13+

Fee: N35,000

Our Web Development camp introduces participants to coding via a technology they are already familiar with - the World Wide Web. There’s been a lot of buzz about coding of late. Alongside maths and reading, coding is an essential skill considering our ever-growing digital World, Unfortunately, only a few students have the opportunity to learn to program because it is rarely taught in schools. Because programming allows us to take a complex problem, understand the problem, and develop possible solutions, learning to code is beneficial no matter what your career ambitions are.

The Web Development community boasts of over 18m Developers spread across different countries. Whether you are a beginner or learning a new technology, this community will assist you in your journey.

At the end of the training, participants will know how the everyday website they interact with works and build basic websites with images, colours, tables, etc. Participants will build and deploy a personal website as a testament to what they have learned.

Programming & Animations (Micro Bit) age 11+

Fee: N35,000+ kits

Our Programming & Animations Camp using Micro Bit introduces participants to the art of Computer Programming and Animations. Participants learn how to use the Microsoft MakeCode platform which brings computer science to life for all students with fun projects, immediate results, and both block and text editors for learners at different levels. We also teach participants how to program the Micro Bit directly using the MicroPython programming language.

The Micro Bit (also referred to as BBC Micro Bit, stylized as micro:bit) is an open source hardware ARM-based embedded system designed by the BBC for use in computer education in the United Kingdom. The device is described as half the size of a credit card and has an ARM Cortex-M0 processor, accelerometer and magnetometer sensors, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, a display consisting of 25 LEDs, two programmable buttons, and can be powered by either USB or an external battery pack. The device inputs and outputs are through five ring connectors that form part of a larger 25-pin edge connector.

The Micro Bit was designed to encourage children to get actively involved in writing software for computers and building new things, rather than being consumers of media. Children love to see things happen which makes learning programming with the Micro Bit device fun and rewarding in knowledge.

Each participant gets a complete kit of Micro Bit which includes the Micro Bit itself, a battery pack, a usb cable to upload software and a pouch for convenience.
